It is essential that young people receive appropriate information at the right time. During the beginning of their teenage years they need to be made aware of the dangers hidden in the free sex movement and at the same time they need to learn those behaviors that will help them to avoid getting caught in a bad situation. In order to do this, they need to determine and develop the appropriate value system, self-worth, a sense of respect for others and plans for the future. The Youth at the Threshold of Life [the name CrossRoads goes by in Hungary] sex education and character development program produced by Timoteus Tarsasag [a partner organization for the strategy] seeks to provide help in realizing and implementing these things. In this program sex is not primarily approached from the physical and anatomical levels, but the equally important – if not more important – emotional, spiritual, ethical and moral perspectives.
